DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE?
By: Ferd Sebastian

A lot of people go through life not knowing who they are. Because of this they miss the best that God has for them. They also miss serving God in the way He intended. Why? Because you lack the self confidence and the power to be the Body of Christ.

Yes a lot of people have low self esteem and say I could do nothing. I am nothing. Or they just say some day Jesus will come and fix all this. Well Jesus came. And He conquered the Devil and He gave you the authority to do His work. You say you cannot fight the Devil? Well like I said maybe you do not know who you are!

The first thing you have to know is what Jesus did for you. And who you are in Christ. Oh we all know we got Salvation. But that is just the icing on the cake. There is so much more. And we can never use it if we do not know about it and claim it as ours.

So first there is a #1 prerequisite that we must get before anything can be given us. WE MUST BE BORN AGAIN! When this happens we immediately have a new place in God's eyes. Let's now see how we are positioned with God and Christ.

Eph. 2:6, God has raised us up together with Christ.
In God's eyes you are seated with Jesus at His right hand. You are in Christ, just as Christ is in you here on earth.

1Cor. 6:17, He that is joined to the Lord is one spirit.
You and Jesus could be no closer together. Jesus is not just with you, you are part of each other.

1Cor. 12:27, Now you are the body of Christ.
What does that mean? We Christians here on earth are the body of Christ. He is the Head. The head does the thinking and the leading, and the body carries out the work. So when Jesus wants something done here on earth it is up to us to do it. How could we? Easy, with Jesus' Spirit joined to ours He is transferring His authority and power to us to do His will. But we must except it and be obedient to His commands.

Matt. 28:20, "And I am always with you."
All power belongs to Jesus ... and Jesus is always with us. So we have that power in us at all times.

Eph. 3:20, His power is at work in us.
His power is not dormant! It is at work. That means we are, or should be using it. How many of us are really using it? Isn't it time we realized what Jesus has done for us and start doing what He intended. Being His body here on Earth and carrying out the Father's will.

HOW MUCH POWER IS THAT?
Matt. 28:18, Jesus said, "All power is given to me in Heaven and Earth."
Eph. 11:19-20, His power is like He used to raise Jesus. Hallelujah!!!

That is the power to raise the dead. That is the power to heal the sick. That is the power to trample the Devil and all evil forces that come against us. That is the power to be the Body of Christ.

THAT IS THE POWER OF GOD! ... THANK YOU JESUS ...
But you can only use a gift that you know you have, and that you accept. And we can only use it through Jesus, because of God's grace and love for us.

IT TOOK ME 12 YR. OF STUDY BEFORE GOD REVELED TO ME WHO I WAS IN CHRIST. STUDY THIS AND USE IT WISELY AND WITH THE LOVE OF JESUS. YOUR BROTHER IN CHRIST, FERD
